An assessment is the foundation that can direct you to the best solution for your ostomy patients. For many clinicians, this is a natural practice... but how does one address those unique body profiles and stoma characteristics in clinical practice? What if you could sharpen your approach to that assessment and further define the right solution? In this session you will hear from a panel of experts sharing thoughts on specific case studies, a systematic approach to assessment, and share best practice options for this unique patient population.

Learning Objective:
  • The learner will understand how to implement the body profile assessment into their practice and recognize the impact of this solution-based approach.
